1.12 Upgrade Path

The University offers direct admission to MCA 2
year Integrated Programme by sending offer
letters to those BCA students who have paid fee of all the six semesters sequentially. Minimum
and maximum duration of Integrated BCA-MCA is five and eight years respectively. Offer letters
are sent to all the eligible students once only. Successful completion of BCA is not mandatory for
seeking direct admission into 2
yr MCA under Integrated Prog. However, a student should have
a minimum of two years left, out of the maximum duration of 8 years. If any student misses

availing the offer, then he/she can approach the Regional Centre concerned at the appropriate time,
as per schedule.

Some of the conditions for qualifying the Degrees of Bachelor of Computer Applications and
Master of Computer Applications under Integrated Programme are as under:

(a) Minimum duration for completion of all the requirements for the award of Degrees of Bachelor of
Computer Applications as well as Master of Computer Applications would be 5(five years).
However, a learner would be allowed a maximum duration of 8 (eight years). In case of failure
to do so, he/she can seek re-admission by remitting the pro-rata fee of all those left-over
courses of BCA as well as MCA simultaneously, which he/she had not successfully
completed within the maximum duration. As per Re-admission rules, such students are also
required to remit the fee of the missed semester(s), if any, in addition to pro-rata fee of the left-over
courses. In such a case, the duration would be extended by another 2 years from the date of
expiry of the maximum duration of 8 years. As per re-admission rules, pro-rata fee of BCA
alone will not be accepted while seeking re-admission by the learners of Integrated
Programme. BCA learners seeking direct admission into 3
semester MCA may please note that
under no circumstances the request for cancellation of MCA would be considered while
seeking re-admission in order to get the duration extended by another two years.

(b) A learner of BCA-MCA Integrated programme is not entitled for the award of PGDCA.
However, MCA Degree would be awarded on successful completion of all the requirements of
and 3
year courses of MCA and the BCA Degree is awarded. Under no circumstances
MCA degree will be awarded before conferring BCA degree.

(c) Other conditions, if any, will be communicated in due course.

The methodology of instruction in this university is different from that of the conventional
universities. The Open University system is more learner-oriented, and the student has to be an
active participant in the teaching- learning process. Most of the instruction is imparted through a
distance with only a small component of face-to- face communication. The University follows a
multi-channel approach for instruction. It comprises a suitable mix of:

self- instructional printed material
audio / video cassettes and CDs
audio-video programmes transmitted through AIR and Doordarshan, and at study centre
face-to-face counselling at Study Centres by academic counsellors
reference library at study centre
web based academic support: e-content available on e-Gyankosh portal
Gyan Darshan Channel, including teleconferencing, Eklavya exclusively for Technology
Gyan Vani.


All the above mentioned components may or may not be part of support to courses of

2.1 Print Material

Printed materials are the primary form of instructional materials. These are supplied to the learners
in the form of several booklets called blocks. Each block consists of several units. The size of a
unit is such that the material given therein may be expected to be studied by a stude nt in a session
of about 4 to 6 hours of study. Therefore, you have to concentrate mainly on the print materials,
which we send to you. However, the fast pace of computer industry necessitates that students must
do some additional readings. Students are advised to study reference books without fail. Studying
the printed material alone may not be sufficient to write assignments and prepare for the term-end
Examinations. Some reference books are available at your study centre. There may be delays in the
receipt of printed study materials by the students owing to different reasons. However, students are
advised to download the course material that is available on IGNOU website and start studying.
They are also advised that they attend to the video lectures uploaded to .

2.2 Audio-Video Material and CDs

These are video-cassettes meant for clarification and enhancement of understanding. However,
audio / video are supplementary material and would not be available in all the courses. The audio-
video material supplements the print material. Hence, we advise you to make use of it as that will
help you to understand the subject better. However, audio- video material will normally not be
supplied to the students individually but will be made available at the Study Centres. You can
watch these programmes during counselling sessions. The schedule for screening these films has
been synchronised with the progress of relevant written material. Students desirous of buying the
audio-video tapes can procure them from:

2.3 Counselling Sessions

The details of the theory and practical counselling sessions are given in the following sections.

2.3.1 Theory Sessions

In Open and Distance Learning (ODL) system, face-to-face contact between the learners and their
tutors/counsellors is relatively less. The purpose of such a contact is to answer some of your
questions and clarify your doubts that may not be possible through any other means of
communication. It also provides you with an opportunity to meet your fellow students.

There are academic counsellors at the Study Centres to provide counselling and guidance to you in
the courses that you have chosen for study. Normally, these sessions will be held at the study
centres on Saturdays and Sundays.

You should note that the counselling sessions would be very different from the classroom teaching
or lectures. Counsellors will not be delivering lectures as in conventional teaching. They will try
to help you to overcome difficulties that you face while studying for the BCA programme. In these
sessions, you must try to resolve your subject-based difficulties and any other related issues.

Before attending the counselling session for each course, please go through your
course material as per the session schedule and make a plan of the points to be

2.3.2 Practical Sessions and Compulsory Attendance

The practical sessions will be held in the computer centres / labs of the Study Centres. In these
computer labs, the participants will have the facility to use the computer and software packages
relevant to the syllabus. The following points regarding the practical attendance must be noted:

(i) 70% attendance is compulsory for each lab course. However, this condition is not
applicable for the computer time given for assignment implementation.
(ii) This is a pre-requisite for taking the term-end practical examination in the respective lab
(iii) A student who fails to fulfill the 70% attendance requirements are required to re-
appear in the practical classes in the next session by remitting 50% of the pro-rata fee.
For fee details and the application form, please contact your Regional Centre. In case, the
student appears for the term end practical examination in a course without fulfilling the
minimum attendance requirements, then the result shall be withheld and University reserves
the right to cancel the result.
(iv) Student attendance will be recorded course-wise at the study centre.
(v) Strictly follow the guidelines given in the Lab manuals for the respective lab courses.
(vi) Computer to Student ratio will be 1:2.

become more and more necessary because of many application of Computer Science and various areas of
engineering. Regarding computer science concept from discrete mathematics are useful to study or express
objects or problems in computer algorithm and programming languages. For instance, to improve the
efficiency of a computer programs, we need to study its logical structure, which involves a finite number of
steps each requiring a certain amount of time. Using the theory of combinatory and graph theory, major
areas of discrete mathematics, we can do this. Therefore, a study of these areas would complement and

BCSP-064: Project 8 Credits

The objective of the BCA project work is to develop a quality software solution by following the software
engineering principles and practices. During the development of the project the students should involve in all
the stages of the software development life cycle (SDLC). The main objective of this project course is to
provide learners a platform to demonstrate their practical and theoretical skills gained during five semesters
of study in BCA Programme. During project development students are expected to define a project
problem, do requirements analysis, systems design, software development, apply testing strategies and do
documentation with an overall emphasis on the development of a robust, efficient and reliable software
systems. The project development process has to be consistent and should follow standard.. For example
database tables designed in the system should mach with the E-R Diagram. SRS documents to be created as
per IEEE standards.

Students are encouraged to spend maximum time of the sixth semester working on a project preferably in a
software industry or any research organization. Topics selected should be complex and large enough to
justify as a BCA final semester project. The courses studied by the students during the BCA Programme
provide them the comprehensive background knowledge on diverse subject areas in computer science such
as computer programming, data structure, DBMS, Computer Organization, SAD, Software Engineering,
Computer Networks etc., which will be helping students in doing project work. . Student will receive
Project Guidelines along with their 5
semester course material. Students should strictly follow and
adhere to the BCSP-064 project guidelines.

Completion of the programme requires successful completion of both assignment component and
the Term-end Examination component for each of the courses in the programme. The total numbers
of courses in BCA(Revised)e are 39 and the total number of credits are 99.
Evaluation for each course covers two aspects:

(a) Continuous evaluation through Assignment with a weightage of 25% in all courses except
ECO-01, ECO-02, FEG-02, and BCSP-064. The weightage for assignments in ECO-01, ECO-
02 and FEG-02 is 30%. There is no assignment component in BCSP-064(Project Course).
Wherever marks for viva-voce are mentioned in the assignment of any of the courses, viva-
voce is compulsory. If the student submits assignment and does not attend viva-voce, then the
submission of the assignment becomes NULL and VOID. Student will be awarded ZERO
marks for the assignment.

(b) Term-end examination with a weightage of 75% for all the courses except ECO-01, ECO-02,
FEG-02 and BCSP-064. The weightage for term end examination for ECO-01, ECO-02 , and
FEG-02 is 70%. In the case of BCSP-064, Project Report evaluation is having a weightage of
75% and viva-voce is having a weightage of 25%.

Note: A learner should not apply for appearing at the term-end examination of any course
without getting registered for the same and that if s/he does so, her/his result would be withheld.
The result may be cancelled and the onus shall be on the student.


The main objective of assignments is to keep student spend time in studying the course material and
other materials such as reference books, related websites etc. Hence, students are suggested not to
copy the answers for the assignments from the course materials.

Unfair means in attempting the assignments

As per IGNOU Norms(If the learners copy the assignments, which is an important component of
the ODL system, such assignments will be awarded zero and direct such students to re-attempt
the fresh assignments pertaining to the next year which will indirectly delay the award of degree by
a semester / year.)
